Jennifer Letchet Paintings

My work explores fundamental elements of painting, the relationship between colour and line. I intend my paintings to affect the viewer optically with the illusion of shapes moving and receding. Colour theory is very important to my work. I use specific hues to symbolise ideas or emotions. The contained shapes on canvases seem more like objects than lines. My recent work explores natural and man-made disasters and the impact this has on our environment. I want to record the changing landscape through simplified shapes and colours.

Last week in the Wimbledon MA studios

In the run up to the final show and MA assessments, I've been busy working away finishing paintings, curating the space I share with 2 other students, painting floors and walls!  It's been a very exciting but stressful time, and its only just dawned on me that its ending.  My work has really developed and changed over the last year.  The exhibition space works well; Paul, Inguna and I have curated our work together.  We wanted to avoid the cubicle type show.  We have common themes within our work; all three of us interpret the landscape in some way.  Inguna's work is more eco themed, Paul draws intricate pieces focusing on light and my work looks at the earth's topography in a more abstract sense.  In the room next to us lies Fiona's work and the colours of her abstract cascades work harmoniously with our work.  Here's a few photos of how the space has been changing from studio to exhibition, with a little taster of what is to come in the show next week!
